Step into the captivating tale of Connie and Megan's love story as they weave their dreamy wedding vision with the Calgary Zoo as their scenic backdrop.

Personal Touch & Cultural Richness

The union was enriched by merging their heritages with a beautiful Chinese Tea Ceremony, blending tradition with modern touches to symbolize the union of two families. It is a meaningful part of the day, bringing respect and honour and seeing the tea ceremony as a symbol of the families welcoming the brides into their respective families. Drinking tea symbolizes that the parents recognize and accept a new person to the family. It’s also an expression of gratitude on the couple’s part. “It means: ‘I am marrying into this family, I will show my respect by serving tea to the elders," Drawing endless inspiration from the heart, their love story became an integral part of their special day.

Connie and Megan looked fabulous in their matching ruby-red outfits. Megan wore a fantastic ruby red dress with white embroidery running down the right shoulder, the silhouette reminiscent of the 1950s. Connie wears a traditional Chinese suit with red cranes embroidered down the jacket. The vibrant colours in attire and decorations symbolized luck, longevity, and new beginnings. These personalized, culturally rich narratives transform this wedding day into an exquisite masterpiece, reflecting the intertwined souls in a lifelong commitment with honour and respect to continue to enrich their lives together.



Zoo-Flora & Fauna Affair Unique to your Calgary Zoo Wedding

The Calgary Zoo is a perfect venue to bring together the union of two souls in harmony with the babbling brooks and sprawling topiaries found on the grounds. The chosen floral arrangements were no haphazard selection but a symphony of nature's artistry. Each carefully selected bloom stood as a testament to the distinctive autumn season and its relation to it—an allegory of the life cycle the blooms would witness to the life the brides would weave.

The intertwining trails of greenery, succulents, and copper-toned sunflowers brought texture and warmth. They incorporated toffee and quicksand roses, reflecting a landscape of adventures to explore. This bespoke curation of texture and colour was not just an ornate display; it was a narrative of the couple's love for roses and sunflowers breathing through the very ambiance of the celebration.

The florals for this wedding day blended with precision against the champagne tones of Meagan's vintage wedding dress and the seafoam green and dusty blue of the bridesmaids' dresses. Connies' boutonniere perfectly coordinates with her Calvin Butts (bespoke) suit and the floral details of Megan's bouquet. The succulents were a symbol of love that would continue to grow and evolve over time—a resilience to continue to grow through good times and hard times.




Crafting Everlasting Memories

The Zoo's gorgeous landscape served perfectly for every posed frame captured by the talent of Sarah Nicole's Wedding Photographers.

Connie and Megan's reception tables were adorned with miniature gold animal figurines to highlight the wedding location, and boxes of card games showcased the couples' love for games. These playfulness elements represent togetherness and fun for everyone to enjoy. A tale unfolded, exceeding the norm, celebrating each quirky passion of the newlyweds. The dessert table was a beautiful display from Whippt, featuring vanilla passion fruit flavour, lemon blueberry, and other flavour varieties.
